Education Select Committee - Purpose of Education

Just seen a TES article where the Education Select Committee appear to be asking for input on some fundamental questions.

His committee wants people’s views on:

*What the purpose of education for children of all ages in England should be.

*What measures should be used to evaluate the quality of education against this purpose.


Watch out for the wellbeing word and the shared understanding of what children have 'entitlement' to, as policed by the state.

The stench of Common Purpose is all around at the moment.
